segui il sito Linee strategiche, in costante aggiornamento: Alcune segnalazioni:

– Will Afghanistan Follow Syria’s Scenario? (Andrei Akulov, Strategic Culture Foundation).  With ISAF to leave Afghanistan in 2014, the Taliban exercising control over large portions of the country against the backdrop of raging civil war is quite a probable scenario. (…).
– Syria and Lithuanian Mercenaries. On the Preparation of a New Provocation (Nikolai Malishevski, Strategic Culture Foundation). It is no secret that Lithuania gave refuge to some courageous fellows from NATO in Šiauliai, whose job it was to patrol the airspaces of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. On the very next day after the guys from NATO appeared, the hospitable people of Šiauliai, evidently in celebration, attacked them and beat them up. The blood of those injured ran into Lithuanian soil. One can therefore justifiably argue that the integration of Lithuania and NATO is a friendship sealed with blood. (…).
– East Ghouta: False Flag Chemical Attack (Nikolai Malishevski, Strategic Culture Foundation). The International Institute for Peace, Justice and Human Rights (ISTEAMS) has just published a comprehensive report on the chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of East Ghouta. The document is called The Chemical Attacks on East Ghouta to Justify Military Right to Protect Intervention in Syria. With video clips and the evidence provided by witnesses to support the conclusions, the report has been submitted to the United Nations Human Rights Council and spread among foreign diplomats. (…).
– Brazil to End US Spying on its Soil (Nil Nikandrov, Strategic Culture Foundation). One can understand the reason for indignation of the Brazilian government when Edward Snoeden’s revelations made come into the open the data proving that the United States is involved in pervasive electronic and human intelligence efforts against Brazil. President Dilma Rousseff and her government find it hard it reconcile with the fact that during many years actually all military and oil industry related secrets were known to the chief regional rival, or, to put it plainly, the only real opponent of Brazil in the Western Hemisphere. (…).
– Il Venezuela, gli Usa e il complotto perfetto contro Maduro (Niccolò Locatelli, Limes online). Da oltre 6 mesi il presidente del Venezuela denuncia tentativi di ucciderlo e sabotaggi all’economia del suo paese. Ma la maniera più facile di estrometterlo potrebbe essere quella di lasciarlo (non) governare. (…).
– Should Brazil’s Central Bank Be Selling Foreign Reserves? (Marcio Garcia, Eurasia review). The recent reversal of capital flows to emerging markets raises the question of whether and how to intervene in currency markets. Brazil’s central bank has intervened heavily, spending more than $50 billion and promising to double that by the end of the year. However, almost all of that intervention has taken place in onshore derivative markets that settle in real. This column argues that such interventions can be effective, but that central banks must stand ready to use their foreign-exchange reserves if necessary. (…).
– La Germania sconfitta: il flop dei liberali e degli antieuro (Ubaldo Villani-Lubelli, Limes online).  Le elezioni politiche di domenica scorsa, oltre a sancire il trionfo di Angela Merkel, hanno annientato la FDP, lasciandola per la prima volta fuori dal parlamento. Stessa sorte per Alternativa per la Germania. (…).
– Is China Getting Ready to Clean Up Its Debt? (James Parker, The Diplomat). A number of signs suggest that it might be. It will be a fine line to walk, if so. (…).
– Sri Lanka NPC Polls: Messages For One And All (Eurasia review). The sweeping victory for the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in Saturday’s first-ever Northern Provincial Council (NPC) in Sri Lanka has a message for various stake-holders nearer home and afar. Read and acted upon with care and caution, it can be the (only) sure-fire way to attaining the still-elusive political rapprochement and resolution. Left to imagination and rhetoric, it can be the sure recipe for national disaster all over again. (…).
